Release history

BioCocoa 2.0 -- in progress

BioCocoa 1.7 -- (found in Tags / 1.7)

This new update of the classic BioCocoa code contains the following new features:

  • BCReader, the standalone BCReader classes for sequence file IO (original version Peter Schols)
  • EntrezController, a controller plus view for browsing and fetching NCBI's Entrez Database
  • BCSequenceView, a custom NSTextView for displaying biological sequences (original version Koen van der Drift)

BioCocoa 1.6 -- (found in Tags / 1.6)

This folder contains:

  • the ProjectBuilder project of the SequenceConverter utility application (BioCocoa util.pbproj), which can be opened in Xcode on Mac OS X or in the GNUstep ProjectCenter on Linux/Windows (see www.gnustep.org)
  • the compiled utility application SequenceConverter, ready to run on Mac OS X 10.2 or higher
  • the ProjectBuilder project of the BioCocoa framework (BioCocoa Framework), which can be opened in ProjectBuilder on Mac OS X or in the GNUstep ProjectCenter on Linux/Windows (see www.gnustep.org)
  • the compiled BioCocoa framework (BioCocoa.framework), which can be opened in ProjectBuilder on Mac OS X or in the GNUstep ProjectCenter on Linux/Windows (see www.gnustep.org)
  • the GNU GPL

If you are not a developer and you are only interested in the SequenceConverter utility application (to convert between sequence file formats), you can remove everything in this package except for the SequenceConverter application itself.

Changes since version 1.2:

  • BC now reads SwissProt, NCBI, and PDB files
  • To be consistent when reading all filetypes, 'taxon' and 'taxa' were changed to 'item' and 'items' respectively in BCReader. BCCreator still uses 'taxon' and 'taxa'.
  • Added a 'fileType' key-value

Changes since version 1.1:

  • BC now reads and writes the GCG-MSF format
  • Added Unix and Windows line break methods for cross-platform compatibility
  • BC now recognizes the Trees Nexus block and stores all Newick strings in the root dictionary
  • BC returns all Nexus blocks in the root dictionary
  • BC now stores the line break of the original source file in the root dictionary

For more information on how to use BioCocoa in your own app, see the API docs at: http://www.bioinformatics.org/BioCocoa/docs and the header files in the framework.
